Liverpool and Tottenham are preparing to battle it out in order to sign Marcelo from Real Madrid, Daily Star reports.
News out of Spain suggests that the two Premier League clubs are targeting the Brazilian to fill the role at left back for their respective clubs.
Mauricio Pochettino is currently undergoing a squad overhaul after recently joining Tottenham from Southampton and has targeted the defender to add some extra strength in his new team.
Brendan Rodgers is also chasing the 26-year-old as he was forced to play right back Jon Flanagan on the opposite side last season in order to fill the full back positions.
Marcelo, valued at £26 million, recently saw his first team place under jeopardy after Fabio Coentrao managed to produce a string of strong performances for the La Liga giants.
Marcelo is currently fulfilling his international duties at the World Cup with Brazil and has been on the top of his game ever since he helped Madrid win the Champions League.
